Dillon Baxter Ruled Ineligible For Golf Cart Ride With Agent

USC running back Dillon Baxter did not travel with the Trojans this weekend, and was ruled ineligible for their game against Oregon State, after he was spotted riding in a golf cart across the USC campus with an agent. The agent, USC student Teague Egan, is listed as the founder and CEO of 1st Round Enterprises. Egan is also a registered financial advisor with the NFL Players Association.

Baxter reportedly asked Egan for a ride to the student health center after feeling dehydrated on Thursday. He told the USC cmpliance office that he knew Egan, but did not know he was a registered agent. For now, Baxter is ineligible, though a USC compliance officer told the LA Times he expects Baxter to have his eligibility restored pending a charity donation for the value of the ride.

The curious part of the story surrounds 1st Round Enterprises. According to the Los Angeles Times, the agency lists former USC linebacker Jordan Campbell as a founder.

The 1st Round Enterprises website also lists former USC linebacker Jordan Campell as a company executive. Campbell left USC last summer for Louisville after the NCAA handed down sanctions earlier this year that included a two-year bowl ban.

The company was founded in June of 2009, while Campbell was still on the USC football team. On the 1st Round website, Egan's bio touts his relationships with USC athletes.

Originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, but now living in Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of the world, Teague befriended many athletes on the USC football team, as well as filmmakers around the city.

In addition to Egan and Campbell, USC law professor Fred Frenster is listed as a senior advisor/financial advisor for 1st Round Sports.

As USC continues to deal with the sanctions and fallout from the Reggie Bush investigation, more connections with agents is the last thing the Trojans need. Outside of the golf cart ride, there hasn't been any evidence of wrongdoing, though the compliance office is continuing to investigate whether any other USC players have had contact with Egan or 1st Round.

Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
